    Hi everyone,
    I have been watching the forums for a while and have finally decided to root my Droid. I got the instructions from here "http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-labs/74028-root-droid-1-regardless-os-version.html" and everything looked to work perfectly up to installing the update.zip file on it.

    Here is what I did.....
    Connected my phone and ran RSD Lite on the .sbf file
    Shutdown and booted to the recovery screen (saw the gold android too)
    Chose "Allow update.zip Installation"
    Chose "Install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)"

    Received the following message:
    -- Install from sdcard --
    Finding update package...
    Opening update package...
    Verifying update package...
    Installing update...
    Installation aborted.

    Started the process 3 times and have not been able to get past this.
    Does anyone have any ideas on what my be going on, or if I am doing anything wrong?

    Thanks!

    Read the instructions in the link you provided. Read it all the way through. Ther answer to your problem is in those instructions. Especially pay attention to the part that says read the entire instructions before you begin. Those are the best set of instructions available and for me to reitterate what MotoCache wrote is just silly. He did a nice job. Read it.

    Did you rename the file update.zip? If you did try renaming the file just update without the .zip and see if that works

    Did you catch the boot? Did rsdlite say PASS? Were you still in the bootloader when you finished with rsdlite?
    This questions will help you.

    I had this error once when I had a bad SD Card and once when I had a bad update.zip file. Try copying the file to your SD Card again. Try copying it to a different SD Card and use that card to install. Otherwise...as I said earlier...the answer is in those instructions.
